Audi Vs BMW billboard wars
BMW and Audi are two German rivals that have always been fond of taking
shots at each other -- that's nothing new. But this rivalry has spawned a
new battle where creativity and ad budgets are the weapons.

In July 2010 Audi took its EV concept to the Silvretta E-Auto Rally in
Austria. The competition is designed to pit the latest and greatest of the
electric vehicle world against each other over 10 special stages that cover
a total of 104 miles. The company picked Michael Dick, a member of its
board for technical development, and Lucas Luhr, a factory race driver, to
helm the machine throughout the event.
They finished first overall using the R8 e-tron demonstrator. The winning
car is based on the body of a standard R8 V10 coupe and powered by the
four-motor electric drive system used in the Frankfurt e-Tron concept.
A R8 e-tron prototype (rated 381 PS (280 kW; 376 bhp) and 820 N·m (604.80
lb·ft)) driven by Markus Winkelhock completed Nürburgring at 8:09.099
Many publications were hailing it as the first car to truly be able to beat
the Porsche 997 — considered by many to be one of the best sports cars
ever made, and a leader in its class. Initial comparison tests have
proven quite positive in this respect; Evo Magazine listed it as a
"supercar", compared the R8 to the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, Aston Martin
V8 Vantage, and BMW M6 and after praising the R8's "amazing stability,
traction and grip, unparalleled steering accuracy and bite, (and) its
uncannily flat and disturbance-free ride", claimed that as a result of "the
sublime effortlessness of it all", the Audi is a better sports car. The
article concluded that "Audi humbles Porsche. A new dawn starts today".
Other publications have also written similar reviews of the Audi beating
the Porsche in comparison tests. In a half mile drag race conducted
by Battle of the Supercars between the R8 and a 997 Carrera S, the Porsche
won, crossing the line just a half metre before the R8. However, the R8
easily beat the Porsche around Top Gear's test track.
The television show Top Gear compared the Nissan GT-R to the R8 V8, and
remarked that the R8 was "simultaneously less impressive and yet somehow
more involving". On the R8 they wrote that "it rewards driver input",
calling it "fantastic in a way that will appeal more to true car
enthusiasts", but also remarked that it (the V8 model) was "much slower",
and the GT-R was cheaper. On their test track, the car performed better
than a Lamborghini Gallardo and an Aston Martin DB9.
On Bedford Autodrome, tested by Evo Magazine, the R8 was faster than the Lamborghini

500 hp Audi S4 quattro vs 12"+ of fresh snow! Unstoppable...
Last night we enjoyed a great winter storm, well over 12" (30 cm) at my
house. I wanted to see if my lowered Audi S4 on Dunlop Wintersport 4D snow
tires was up to the task going through such deep snow.
